Another year, another birthday🎂🎉🕯️🍰🎁🎈 (4/20) Yay!!!
In the past year, there were times when the earth stopped moving and seems like the weight of it’s gravity was pulling me down, deeper than I ever thought possible. I stumbled and tumbled farther than I can ever imagine falling. The sun went black and my heart felt empty and starting over seemed like an impossible feat.
But through it all I’m still standing (look at God). I know that I’m not alone, that HE who promised is able to keep me to that perfect day.
This quote by Japanese author, Haruki Murakami is so apt
“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain when you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what storms are all about.”
Today as I add a year to my age, I’m cheering myself on like “yeah, Viky, you got this shit, you are effing amazing. You overcame even though you are not half the shit you thought you could be. You are continuously a work-in-progress.”
Mark these five “Notes to self” that I find absolutely poignant as I grow older.
So here’s to another freaking great birthday as I remain forever grateful. Join me in a glass of bubblies.
